As the new semester begins we will be introducing our 2017-2018 team through their favorite TED Talks. First up is Fiona, a Sophomore at Allendale Columbia School.
The TED Talk I chose was How to gain control of your free time by Laura Vanderkam. I chose this talk because as a student who likes to pursue their interests outside of school, I find it hard sometimes to manage it all. In the video, Ms. Vanderkam explains that we must spend as much time on our passions and priorities as we would with unnecessary issues that we are forced to waste our days on. Every minute we spend is our choice and we can delegate what we choose to fill up our days with. In our lives we must determine to ourselves what is important and what is a priority.
How do you spend your free time? What are some of your priorities? What are some of the things you have been meaning to do but haven’t yet made into a priority?
